Review of "Far"

Recommended Posts

When she gets more serious, like on the arpeggiating "Genius Next Door" or "Man Of A Thousand Faces," she loses something.

Absolute bull. In fact, that is where she shines!

And I consider a B- in catchiness a compliment.

Also, female Ben Folds...not at all.

Another thing, in what world would Machine be described as "wacky"?

I like this quote: "Her piano and her nostalgic vocals could describe the color for a blind man, and he would finally understand what color was."

"Quirky crap she used to do on 11:11 and Songs"? Say whaaaaat?!

"Far is her second best album, and it is so close to being as good as (or better than) Soviet Kitsch that it's almost scary." Big Grin Sputnikmusic has a weird community I very rarely agree with their reviews but this one is neat!

I agree with this review a lot. Very true about her songs being straightforward but containing genius subtleties. That's why I don't play her music when I'm , say, working in the studio. It would be such a downer if I said to people "no, you have to really listen to the lyrics!!!" And I think that's why many people miss out on her, they're not willing to give each song the time that they require.

Well, ya know, it is...

with all of its dark pizzicato strings and depressing lyrics about dismemberment and despair.
